2 Lupo´s
« on: October 15, 2005, 12:58:31 am »
Just spoke to a former Continental employee, who works in England
(for the last 9 months), who I met in Germany. Weird...
Anyway I remember somewhere on this forum, someone said there
was a lupo in NZ, a blue one or something.  I just heard from this
guy that 2 were actually imported to test the market in NZ, there has to
be a second one about if thats true... Anybody seen anything?

Bevan was his name.
Guess if thats so, they must both be blue..
if they are made in the year 97, 1.4 will be 60hp
                                       98, 1.4 will be 75hp
                                       99, 1.4 will be 101hp incase you get the year as well.

Actually i saw the famous blue (purply/blue) Lupo on Wednesday last week parked outside Burger Fuel in Parnell around 6pm. I hung out for a minute or two to see if I could catch the owner but no luck - only to see it drive past me about 30 seconds after I walked off. I think the plate was "WE????"

There's a pic of it in the CCS parts/service dept. From memory it had the plate on in the pic. I think one of there demos had LUPO as the plate

Only the one blue Lupo was brought in, as a test car.  Yeah - it's the blue one seen around central Auckland.

I love seeing the Lupo & other VAG NZ Oddballs.

Saw one of the A2's in the weekend.

Anyone else seen that yellow Skoda ute, that looks like it may grown out of a Polo

Seen a few old 80's SEAT Ibiza's around lately & on the same day I saw 2 tornado red 90's SEAT Ibiza, like the 90's Polo. Separate plates

Have also seen a late model SEAT Cupra in silver in the city.

Always good to see another SEAT  ;D

A red one too ...

Hmm..  Don't think they sell SEAT's in Japan, so maybe UK imports

The silver one wasn't an R either, had the plate Cupra from memory
